100% Guaranteed Data-Destruction

Protek offers Software & Physical Data Destruction Options to Securely and Quickly Protect Your information

We  at ProTek Recycling know that data security is of the utmost importance to you. And like environmental responsibility, we want all of our clients to know exactly what happens with their data-containing devices and how we manage and eliminate their risk.

Two Levels of Secure Data Destruction:

  1. Software Destruction: All data on the hard drive is overwritten at least three times with random number sequences. This renders all data irretrievable; however this does not destroy the drive itself.

  2. Physical Destruction: This is the most secure method and is ideal for larger quantities of drives or storage media. The hard drive itself is destroyed either with by magnetic degaussing or physical shredding.

    • Degaussing scrambles the magnetic sectors on the disk as well as damaging internal components such as the read/write heads.
    • Shredding is done to the drive as a whole and the information-containing disk is broken into small pieces and mixed with the material from hundreds of other drives.

Large quantities of bare drives or equipment containing drives can be picked up by our staff. Small quantities (1-20 drives) may be mailed to our site for destruction. We will never view, copy, or otherwise access any data on hard drives that we receive. We can also remove the drives from equipment we pick up for recycling.

Know Where Your Data Traveled and Confirm It’s Destruction

  1. Chain of Custody: Receive a full report on where your data traveled, and who handled it from your door step to it’s final destruction.

  2. Certificate of Destruction: Receive a certificate verifying the complete deletion and destruction of data from your drives.
